1  Coolest doily shrug ever in Crochet: Completed Projects by roquemoma on: March 11, 2006 01:04:28 AM
I am SO happy with the way this turned out, but I don't think I ever want to do it again, kwim?  Creating the individual doilies was fun, hooking them together while keeping them properly spaced and the whole thing flat was way too much of a pain, of course there's probably an easier way to do it than I did.  But it turned out gorgeous, and my daughter loves it, so that's what's important.  The idea of using doily patterns and putting them together into a garment was inspired by this thread about a camisole Anthropologie sells, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=57274.0.  The general shape of the shrug was inspired by a really long thread on the knitting board where several members ended up coming up with a pattern together.  I don't knit well, so I took the general shape of the pattern and then did something completely different to achieve it.  Here is a picture of the individual doilies before I joined them, and front and back pictures of the completed project:

2  Superfast Baby Sweater with Recycled Silk Trim in Crochet: Completed Projects by roquemoma on: March 11, 2006 12:57:30 AM
I crocheted this in a day and a half, it went really quickly, it's the Baby It's Cold Outside pattern from Crochetme (http://www.crochetme.com/Feb_Mar_2005/patt_baby_sweater.html).  I used Patons Divine in rose for the body of the sweater, I don't usually use synthetics but I had some laying around, but the trim is what I'm really proud of, I had a 8 x 72 inch strip of Dupioni silk leftover from a curtain I had cut up for a difference project, and I cut that into strips a little less than a quarter inch wide, wound it into a ball, and used it for the trim.  The white yarn of the flowers was a little bit of yarn from my stash that I long since lost the info for, so I don't know what that was.  Anyway, here it is:

Thanks so much for this idea! My budget is really limited and I get so annoyed watching home improvement and diy shows where the materials are SO expensive, this idea is beautiful and cheap and easily changed if you get tired of it.  I don't rent but my husband never wants me to do anything permanantly weird to the house that would hurt its resale value:) So anyway, here's what I did with this idea, I'm not at all as artistic as Aliastriona, I found this template for stained glass making on the internet, blew it up and tiled it in Open Office Calc, then taped it to the outside of the window and followed the lines.  It's in my little girls' bedroom, they wanted something for Valentine's decorations:

I forgot to add, it's 3 ft wide, and a little more than three feet tall, and even with three little "helpers", I did the painting part in under an hour.
